Conversation starter products to address your invisible disability also can make it easier to live and work with the people you encounter in your daily life.
The Invisible Disabilities Association (IDA) is very excited to announce the addition of two incredibly handy new awareness items in the IDA Store. Both products were inspired by people living with invisible disabilities and result in fulfilling many requests from our readers for ID cards, badges, and shirt pins. Therefore, as an organization working hard to see to the needs of all members, we are elated to bring these essential tools to our membership and the public.
Lanyard Invisible Disabilities ID Badge Wallet Results in Easier Mobility and Good Conversations
Foremost is the Invisible No More! Invisible Disabilities ID Badge Wallet, a hands-free lanyard with a pouch to hold identification and other cards. When you wear this to a doctor’s appointment, on the bus, to the grocery store or anywhere, you are also always prepared to share awareness about invisible disabilities and IDA.
Sherri, the wife of IDA’s founder, inspired this helpful item. Sherri lives with Progressive Multiple Sclerosis, Late Lyme Disease, traumatic brain injuries and toxic injuries. First-hand experiences and frustration often guide her to resourceful solutions.
Sherri wanted a lanyard-type invisible disabilities badge holder with invisible disability information cards to distribute. Plus, she wanted this to be a hands-free option to carry essentials into stores and doctors’ offices. The design that resulted is ideally suited for that purpose with extra room to slide in health cards, insurance cards and more. No more juggling a separate wallet and purse along with other assistance equipment.
The Invisible Disabilities ID Wallet comes with a badge saying, I Live with an invisible disability. You also receive 50 invisible disabilities cards and the roomy soft pouch for your license, cards, cash, and more.
Invisible Disabilities Lapel Pin Joins Conversation Starter Products Lineup
The second product is an Invisible Disabilities Lapel Pin. You can wear this to an appointment, to a meeting, to events or anywhere. Many thanks to Katie Maskey, who inspired this item. Katie lives with chronic pain, and she is an IDA Ambassador. Katie wanted an attractive pin, displaying the IDA “I” logo that she could wear with a dress or jeans. This pin symbolizes challenges and triumphs. Therefore, it is an excellent conversation starter and aid to help you share with others about your invisible disability.
